Mark Cuban Says Mavs Going To Los Angeles To Meet Players

by June 29, 2013

Mark Cuban says the Mavs have meetings set with several unnamed players in Los Angeles—two of which presumably are Dwight Howard and Chris Paul. Per “‘We’re going to go out to L.A. We’ve set a meeting date with a couple of different players. We made it clear to everybody that we’re exploring different options,’ Cuban said. ‘It’s just not one approach. Last year it was one-year deals because we wanted to get to this year, not just because of the big names but there were other names that we really liked. This year it’s not going to be about one-year deals.’ So, what is it about this off-season? ‘We’re looking to get good,’ Cuban said. ‘We haven’t changed our approach in 13 years, just to be opportunistic. When something comes along that makes a lot of sense, we’re going to do it. We sat there yesterday going, ‘Look, if there’s a deal that falls into our lap, that precludes us from going after a maxed-out free agent, we’ll take it.’ We were having a lot of conversation yesterday that would’ve taken us out of any max free agent signing. We’re open to anything.'”
